On the inside, the white circle dial displays silver stick indices for hours, while a date display at the three o’clock position shows the date.

Bulova Men’s 96B104 Stainless Steel Dress Watch – Packaging


  • Round watch featuring logoed white dial with stick indices and date window at 3 o’clock
  • 37 mm stainless steel case with mineral dial window
  • Japanese quartz movement with analog display
  • Croc-textured calfskin band with buckle closure
  • Water resistant to 30 m (99 ft): In general, withstands splashes or brief immersion in water, but not suitable for swimming


  • Slim profile which can fit excellently under a cuff
  • Soft and comfortable leather band
  • Subtle yet elegant design
  • Lightweight
  • Very affordable


  • Some people prefer the Bulova logo to be at the 12 o’clock position as it used to be
  • For 37mm, the watch can be quite small for some people. If you love a big watch, this watch may not be for you
  • Quality of the band is a common complaint among owners
  • Minute hand never quite matches up perfectly

“Very nice watch, extremely minimalist and classic”

Great work or outgoing watch and also if you are new to buying/wearing watches (my first one I bought and still wear it 3 years later)

“A nice – looking piece of men’s jewelry at a reasonable price. Not quite what you’d call elegant, but considering the overpricing of quartz dress watches in general, hard to do much better for the money. Accurate but not “precise”
